Open Sores on Penile Shaft

If you see open sores on your penile shaft, especially after sex, the chances are that you have a condition called chancroid. It is an infection caused by bacteria that creates open sores on penile shaft or near the penis. 

Chancroid is a sexually transmitted infection caused by a bacterium called Haemophilus ducreyi. It infects the tissues around the penis and causes an open sore that we sometimes refer to as ulcer or chancroid.

The sore may produce a liquid or even bleed that can transmit the bacteria from one person to another during vaginal, oral, or anal sex. This condition also spreads through the skin when an infected person has their open sores touching another person.

Other possible causes of open sores on penile shaft are STDs such as the following:

Genital herpes: Genital herpes can cause the formation of tiny blisters that eventually rupture and form open sores on the penile shaft that are painful.

Syphilis: This condition can also cause painless, pimple-like sores to appear on the genitals. They are usually flat, open, and wet.

Sometimes a friction blister on penis caused by overly tight clothes or too much rubbing can be mistaken for the infections mentioned above. If the open sores on penile shaft are due to the bursting of a friction blister on the penis, you wouldn’t need to worry too much. There are medications that can treat the sores, or they may even heal naturally.

However, suddenly noticing sores or blisters on the penile shaft can come as a shock. But before jumping to conclusions and treating it yourself, you can quickly and easily get a STD test at one of the many locations in the city. Not only can you resolve your issue by going for an STD test, but you can also ensure your safety.
